Seasonal Warriors - Discover The Magic Musical
THE HEALTHY MOVEMENT IS IN! WITH THE 'SEASONAL WARRIORS - DISCOVER THE MAGIC' PERFORMANCES WERWE FEATURED AT ARA DARLING QUARTER THEATRE, TERRACE 3, 1 - 25 HARBOUR ST, SYDNEY.
Thank you for this wonderful production!
This production was exceptional from the before show entertainment until the photo opportunity after the show. It was an excellent way to teach important life and environmental messages through a fun and engaging medium. I took my 4 kids along who range in age from 4 - 19 years. Two of my children have autism with one of my sons having significant functional impacts. Despite these difficulties all of my children, myself and my mother who is in her mid 60s all had a blast and learnt heaps.
Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for your continuing efforts in support of Rural Aid. Your generosity is sincerely appreciated and continues to make a difference.
This year in addition to the disaster support Rural Aid has provided, the charity has expanded its mental wellbeing team by appointing 10 additional counsellors.
Droughts, floods and mice plagues come and go but their legacy is a nation of producers made more fragile mentally and increasingly requiring the support of a farmer specific wellbeing service like that offered by Rural Aid.
The work that Rural Aid does would not be possible without the generous support of people like yourself.

Oz Comic-Con During the 5th and 6th of December, Yummie was fortunate enough to be invited to Oz Comic-Con, one of the biggest comic and pop culture conventions in Australia and help celebrate the values of healthy eating and sustainability, through song, dance and most importantly, fun! Yummie had an out of this world time with everyone who came around to our stall. Over the course of the day, there was a lot of waving, dancing and exploring many of the other booths; and of course, many photos taken with some seed-sational costumes.
Yummie was also lucky enough to have run a workshop with the help of the amazing and super talented seasonal warriors, bringing the magic and fun of living seasonably to the stage! Together with a crowd of excited children, they played a plethora of fun games, partook in some fun activities, and joined in a bunch of dances. Yummie was incredibly excited to give the kids plenty of gifts, such as sunflower seeds, generously gifted by Rowston Petrie seeds and an activity sheet that could fold into a hat. The seasonal warriors also made sure to tie in all the fun to the importance of seasonal eating and living and how simple and fun it can be to live seasonably.

Featuring our mascot, Yummie, dancing, sing-alongs, and hands-on, real-world activities, the 'Be SEEDsational Experience' gives kids early exposure and involvement in seasonal and balanced lifestyles, helping them to develop skills and knowledge about food, nutrition, movement, emotional well-being and sustainability.
Move seasonably with our song and dance routines!
Also held at our Be SEEDsational workshops are song and dance routines which incorporate many of our original songs, all including key messages of eating, living and moving seasonably and healthily to encourage long-term well-being!

Our mascot, Yummie, visited several local primary schools to donate fresh produce and copies of our ‘Be SEEDsational: Discover the Magic’ book, and talk to kids about the importance of healthy eating. We also reviewed a popular local restaurant to communicate its healthiest options to the community, teamed up with Dymocks Lane Cove to promote our first book and run a competition supported by local sponsors.
We celebrated the final day of the competition in Lane Cove Plaza, partnering with the KIIS 106.5FM Street Team for fun activities and games including giant Connect Four, and Yummie danced along to our original music! We gave away recipes, books, carrots and 180 balloons. And of course, our competition came to a close.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the campaign; from the Lane Cove business who promoted the competition and donated awesome prizes (Dymocks, McGrath, Lodge Tapas, Bakers Delight and About Life), to the local schools who partnered with us, and everyone who participated in our final day event, bought our book and entered our competition - thanks to you, Lane Cove is officially SEEDsational!

Our adorable team mascot Yummie was delighted to meet the 700 primary school students that were lucky enough to get entry into the limited event. The students, teachers, and volunteers were all cheerfully greeted by Yummie and the team, and were even invited to sing-a-long to the ‘Be SEEDsational: It’s Your Time’ with the mascot! The school children readily took up the challenge, and sang an admirable performance to their peers.
With a small stand for our book presentation, students were also given the opportunity to enter our ‘Win-a-Book’ competition. Yummy Times Group’s newly published book, titled 'Be SEEDsational: Discover the Magic' is aimed to be an entertaining, yet educational tool to help growing children lead healthy lifestyles. It is the first volume in the series ‘Be SEEDsational’, a compelling tale of magical discoveries revolving around educational themes of sustainability, healthy eating and self-identity.
As part of the event, the students took part in hands-on activities and numerous exhibits to learn about various aspects of farming and food production, to support and raise awareness for healthy lifestyles and fresh produce. With such a beautiful and educational message, Yummy Times Group couldn’t be a prouder contributor of the Sydney Royal Easter Show 2016.
